    Sony Cancels PSN's Qore

    Video Games, Cheats, Walkthroughs, Game Trailers, Reviews, News, Previews & Videos at IGN

    Sony's Qore interactive magazine began in June of 2008 and has been released monthly onto the PSN ever since. But today on the PlayStation Blog, it was revealed that April 2012's edition of Qore would be the last issue released.

    "As the first interactive digital magazine on a game console, Qore provided an innovative mix of quality HD video and interactive content covering over 160 new games," PSN's Executive Producer Kevin Furuichi noted on the PS Blog.

    "With this April episode, Qore concludes its run on the PlayStation Network. As a send off, the Qore team built one final DLC package: the Qore Ultimate Arcade features a compilation of 11 mini games offered through the series. Our thanks to all involved in the creation and production of Qore and to the many fans who regularly watched each month."

    Word of Qore's cancellation comes on the heels of dire news set to strike Sony Corporation. The company is purportedly prepping to lay off a full 6% of its global workforce -- 10,000 people in all -- and has warned that its biggest yearly loss is on the horizon, purportedly reaching $6.4 billion in total.

    Well, I'm not surprised. It wasn't very popular anymore and as far as I know, they never said anything worth hearing or that wasn't on the internet before. What I am concerned about is that $6.4 billion loss and how it may affect us gamers .

    I used to subscribe before they announced it was included with PS+ and to be honest I got my money worth. It came with lots of demos, free games, and themes. But as it became free to PS+ they stopped giving out the goods and thats where it started to go downhill. I also noticed that it seemed to change companys being taken over my playstation the offical magazine. Then after they changed hosts I started to stop caring so much. It is sad to hear that April's issue is the last one but it was a good rn while it lasted.

    I watched them when they first started, don't think I've seen a episode in over a year.

    I never watched an episode mainly because I hate how long it takes for my PS3 to download anything due to my bad internet connection. That, and I didn't think it was very interesting in the first place.

    I only watched them when I started getting PS+ and I found them quite amusing when they were first available but as time went on they started to get more dull and it just wasn't really as interesting as it was in the beginning when I started. Used to get really random at times with the hosts. Oh well though, it was good while it lasted.

    Just depends on how you like your information. Being a video watcher, I found the gameplay videos exactly what I wanted to see and know. Qore and Pulse are both good services. I just don't think Qore was worth the money, but for free for PS+? It was not the worst form of news.

    ......meh....... It didn't really bring anything new to the table. Everything you could get off Qore could be found on the internet easily too. It's probably for he best that Sony uses money on other things.
